La Ofrenda

Dirs. Lourdes Portillo & Susana Blaustein Muñoz
1989, 62min

 

Lourdes Portillo documents Day of the Dead celebrations in both Mexico (where she was born) and San Francisco (where she now lives), offering a probing and playful perspective on Chicanx identity and the Mexican relationship to death.

 
Reassemblage

Dir. Trinh T Minh Ha
1982, 40min, 16mm

 

Trinh T. Minh-ha’s brilliantly subversive study of women in rural Senegal deconstructs the colonialist gaze of the ethnographic film.
